Friday Musings–October 9

Jesus leaves his disciples with a new commandment: his followers are to love one another as he has loved them. The Promised One here powerfully illuminates the pathway to life—Christians are to treat themselves and each other the way they have been treated by Jesus. This includes washing feet, releasing, compassion, and patience—a picture of risky, yet real love.

Quite a different scenario than our consumer-driven, self-centered, superficial church - culture offers.
